    A dated museum with interesting artwork. It can get quite hot and stuffy in here due to only having a few air-conditioned rooms. There are also quite a few popular picture spots. I would recommend spending an hour here but its not a must-go in HCM.

    Visited this museum yesterday - was a delightful way to spend an hr or so away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
    Something that surprised me was the size of the estate - the building that displays all the ao dai is an airy barn with both Vietnamese & english descriptions, and is amongst a beautiful garden/park setting. Visitors are able to hire ao dai and take photos amongst the gardens - very picturesque with a lake, small boats, small bridges... lots of young people around taking beautiful photos. A little run down but still plenty of rustic charm.
    Getting there way easy enough - we took a grab car which was around $300,000 VND from Sofitel Hotel and was driven up to the gate of the museum. On the way back we felt a little more adventurous and took the bus back - was a little tricky as no proper bus stop but with some directions from the staff from the museum we were able to stand in the right place (at the t-intersection on the main road/turn off for the museum) and flag down a bus (no. 88). Much cheaper at $6,000 VND a ticket back to HCMC and great experience seeing local life on a bus.

    After I left the shop and thought about the few hours I spent there I think the experience started the moment I entered the street the business is located. Coming off a busy vehicle strewn road the deadend street itself is light filled and clean, flanked by a mix of well kept multi storey residential and commercial older style buildings presenting a lovely chilled scene. The shop itself is well decorated, crossing a green threshold you are greeted with a relaxing atmosphere featuring walls lined with bottles of rice spirit infused with fruit and herbs and jars of coffee and tea.

    The staff are friendly and have a really sound knowledge of what they were offering. If you want to try the spirits you can either choose from the suggestions on the menu or make it up yourself adding a bit of this and that, the number of variations would run into the hundreds and all for the same price of D29,000 per cup (about the same size as a sāke cup). The drinks themselves were different and not the type of thing you just throw back, more something you sip away at. The shop does serve food after 6pm (on the day I was there), had the green paypaya salad with chicken which was tastful and refreshing. Products can be purchased to take away and having brought some Robusta coffee beans roasted with butter I left thinking I will have to come back.

    Oddball place that is a throwback to the Communist era. Entry is free.

    The gardens have a few tatty aircraft surrounded by bonsai and plants with labels telling you of the heroic deeds against the oppressors, go into the building and see two floors of pictures of heroic pilots, sadly only captioned in Vietnamese, strange but an interesting hour if you are close.
